Biographical/Historical note

Charles Trowbridge Haubiel was born in Delta, Ohio, in 1892 and died in Los Angeles in 1978. His career encompassed activity as a teacher, composer, pianist, conductor, lecturer, and publisher. After completing his education in this country and in Europe, Haubiel was invited to join the faculty of the Institute of Musical Art of New York (the Julliard Foundation) in 1920 and that of New York University in 1923. In 1935 he founded the Composer's Press to promote the work of American composers. He served as president of that organization until 1966 at which time it was taken over by the Southern Music Company.

Haubiel's output as a composer includes 3 operas, 20 symphonic works, and many solo, choral, and chamber compositions. A number of his works have won him recognition and awards. Written in a neo-Romantic style, his music is distinguished by its fine craftsmanship. The honorary Doctor of Music degree was conferred upon him by Southwestern Conservatory.

Scope and Contents note

The first series, including correspondence with individuals and organizations, is arranged according to Haubiel's own folder system. The N.Y.U. correspondence (particularly 1940-1946) provides insight into Haubiel's difficulties with that institution concerning charges of anti-semitism against him, and his subsequent resignation. Haubiel's lecture series "War and Music" and "The Path of Music" were broadcast over WNYC in New York City. Many of the scores in Series II and in oversize were presented to Dr. Moldenhauer by Haubiel with their eventual inclusion in the archival collection in mind. Over 100 scores are included in the collection. The sub-series of printed scores includes compositions written by Haubiel and others as published by Composer's Press. It is an extensive, though probably not complete, selection. In the tapes and recordings which comprise Series III are performances of some of Haubiel's major symphonic works as well as some chamber music compositions. The last item in Series IV is a bronze bust of Haubiel mounted on a marble pedestal. The bust was done by Nancy Cox McCormack in 1929.
